Christmas Cocktail & Appetizer: With Watermelon

Updated on November 29, 2011

Watermelon is full of anti oxidants – a good source of Vitamin A and C. The high water content of watermelon gives it fat burning benefits, helping to make the body's metabolism work more efficiently. So, it’s very healthy to eat. I share two Recipes below:

* Watermelon Cocktail *


2 cups of chopped seedless watermelon.
1 piece of seedless orange.
2 bananas.
1 cup of seedless grapes.
1 bottle of any dry champagne.


  • Peel the Seedless Orange and cut into sections.
  • Peel and slice the bananas.
  • Cut grapes into halves.
  • Toss the fruit together in a bowl.

Serving: Divide the fruit in the bowl among 4 – 6 Champagne glasses.




* Watermelon Appetizer *


Seedless Watermelon.
Any cheese of your choice.


  • Cut out the watermelon and cheese into thick square shapes. ( about 1/2 inch thick)
  • Arrange the pieces as a checkerboard on a serving tray.
  • Cut out small circles of the watermelon and cheese and use them as the "checkers."

Serving: It can be served from the tray.
